The story of this chapter belongs to the later period of the judges, when Philistine pressure caused the complete displacement of the tribe of Dan and forced it to migrate northwards.
There is therefore a general connection with the time of Samson.

The narrative shows the decline of true religion and the lawless condition of the times.
